Review-A-Go-Go

Thursday night, we went to see legitimate theater downtown. We saw Moon for the Misbegotten which I discovered was the last play written by Eugene O'Neill. Our seats were great. We could actually see the expressions on the actors' faces. The play itself was pretty good and fairly engrossing. I would recommend it for those readers who want a little culture.

Friday afternoon, we went to the mall and I bought A Bigger Bang which is the new album from the Rolling Stones. Such a great album. The overall feel of the album to me is that the Stones have matured to their age but still remember how to rock. One song Jagger complains she drives too fast and in another complains he's eating breakfast at 9 and she's just getting in. It's quite amusing. As many may already know, the song "Sweet Neocon" basically rips the current administration a new one. Gotta love it.

Friday night, we went to the movie theater to see Memoirs of a Geisha. I went because what male wouldn't want to go see a movie about Asian sex slaves but I really became quite engrossed in the story. I will reveal that the ending is rather sad when you think about it but I serious doubt anyone actually does anymore so you're probably safe. My parents jumped on the bandwagon on people complaining most of the actors weren't really Japanese but my feeling is that kind of thing has be going on forever so why complain now especially when they are at least really Asian.

Once again, is there more than one quiz result for this?








Inconsistent
You scored 68 Giving, 68 Respectful, and 22 Selfish!
You have a lot of potential, but you give to get. You expect, and your expectations are rarely met, if ever. Trouble is, no one will ever meet your expectations. YOU can't even meet your expectations. You are all over the board. You need consistency! You also need a time out once in a while. How about relaxing for a minute? Soak in the sun. Give a little TLC to yourself, so you can give it-unselfishly-to others. You'll be surprised at your true joy, rather then your disappointment!!!

When Captain America Throws His Mighty Shield...

As I was recently discussing with someone on Twitter, I'm not a big fan of "Good Guys Manipulated Fight Each Other" films so it's sad that Captain America: Civil War came out so close on the heels of Batman v. Superman. As maybe I've confessed before I am more of a Marvel fan but that is not why this one was better.  DC fans frequently point out this was the 13th Marvel film while BvS  is only the second of their new cinematic universe. To me, that's why it worked better. The tension was building out of the last Avengers  movie and the characters have interacted for several movies worth of time (One must assume interactions happen off screen as well) so they know each other pretty well. Two friends having a disagreement carries so much more weight than two strangers going at it. 

In my critique of  Batman v. Superman,  I noted that the end of the featured fight hinged on the fact both characters' mothers were named Martha. Here, the big fight ended when …

Strange Times

No, this isn't about the election. I'm not ready to unlease that upon the world just yet.  Instead, allow me to share my thoughts on another fantastic entry into Marvel's cinematic universe.  Doctor Strange was the perfect blend of the tone we are used to and the adding of the supernatural world.

Friends on Facebook may have noticed my comment that the first part of  The Imitation Game  was unexpectedly hilarious due in large part to Benedict Cumberbatch's turn as Alan Turing so it comes as no surprise he's awesome as arrogant neurosurgeon (a redundant phrase in my personal experience.)

Doctor Strange, like Ghost Rider, is really not a character that lends itself to having a love interest but since it's an origin story, it worked here with  fellow surgeon Dr. Christine Palmer. Certainly better than in that movie... I've loved Rachel McAdams since The Family Stone  but I'm sure the character'll just go the route of Thor's Jane Foster and just be …

Setup Complete

When I wrote my blog post on the previous Netflix series, Luke Cage, I noted it was only about 90% as dark as Daredevil  and Jessica Jones. Iron Fist  is only about 90% as dark as that series.While that does make me question the Mature rating, I have no problem with that.

I feel in the mood to structure at least the beginning of this review on my feelings on complaints I've heard

1. The acting and writing: I'm sure my bar is lower than others but I feel people who feel the strongest about this have never watched movies on Lifetime or Hallmark. (Oddly, I read a comment on Twitter from a complainer that he had higher hopes for Cloak and Dagger on Freeform than  Inhumans on ABC. Special effects budget, sure but writing and acting? I think that's an iffy wager at best but I digress.)

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick are great as Danny Rand and Colleen Wing. Danny to me is just as a 25 year old man who spent 15 years cut off from the world as he knew it in a monastery (think ster…
